Sick and tired of getting rip-off.

Yeah, another good point is that frys is a good store to buy games too.

The one I went to was massive. They had shelves of games.

It's the same in the UK. $39.99 for a new game in America. £39.99 in the UK. That's exactly twice as much.

EDIT:

Although that's console games. PC games are about £29.99 on release. Which ain't too bad. That's why I switched to PC gaming. My 360 is gathering dust.

Who cares? It's not like I would be buying an EA game anyhoo with their psycho DRM policies [the 3 reinstalls].
